Among the connected car options in Spain, Android Auto is one of the preferred solutions if we use Android on our mobile. Although Google’s main focus is on Android Automotive, a system that offers a more independent experience, Android Auto continues to receive continuous improvements.

As we can see on Reddit, the split screen mode has begun to reach Android Auto users, as Google announced a few days ago. This mode uses about three-quarters of the screen for the main application, which will be located on the left side, while the secondary application will be located on the right.

What if there would be no margin for customization at the moment would be the management of the size of each window, and that is that the left area, closest to the driver, will be where the large window is, while the smaller one will remain on the right.

Although the rollout of this feature has already begun, it is difficult to determine whether or not you will receive these features. Regarding this feature, Google has only indicated that it is designed for more panoramic screens, but they have not been specific enough to be able to determine what types of devices with Android Auto will support this feature.
